Decisions about which language of instruction to use is an important topic around the world, with many debates about policy decisions to introduce English to teach across the curriculum – particularly in low- and middle-income countries. The MultiLila research project aims to contribute vital evidence to inform these decisions.
The British Council is a key partner in the MultiLila project, led by the University of Cambridge and funded by the ESRC (Economic and Social Research Council) and DfID, UK under the umbrella of the Global Education Challenge.
In addition to the research, the project has also undertaken capacity building activities with teachers in Hyderabad. This led to the development of three films illustrating multilingual education in practice, available here.
